Not only as a Black man with four inter-racial children, but as an advocate for equality, human rights, democracy and freedom, who criticizes China, Russia, Syria and other established human rights abusers on a weekly basis, I am especially pitted and inflamed within, at the denials of two grand juries to remedy the unarmed deaths of two and more Black men.
As I have said here already, the state of affairs and circumstances under which young Black men and children(an 18-year-old in Missouri, a 12-year-old in Ohio) have died at the hands of the police, merit full review of police departments - hiring practices, training and psychological evaluation of armed men with licenses to kill.
The action by Attorney General Eric Holder to start investigations into these matters is more than warranted, yet, the state of affairs beg an immediate remedy in light of the unified multi-colored demonstrations from New York to Missouri, to Boston, to Washington, DC, to New Orleans to Sacramento to remind the police that Black lives matter.
But America should not be in this position. This road has been traveled already. And the actions of a few have plunged race-law enforcement affairs into a pit from which they must be hoisted quickly. And to those in denial of this necessity to remedy a possible volatile affair, I urge them to be mindful of history and of our current time - for history, will not be allowed to be repeated.
I have full faith and confidence in this democracy to remedy the wrongs that Russia and China have been so quick to point to in American race relations.
